Rullie Haywood Jr.
Rullie was introduced to the sport of bowling during a high school field trip. After joining the Army, Rullie found himself at Fort Bragg where he learned more and more about the sport and eventually started to bowl in leagues. Rullie and his wife Beverly used league nights as one of their weekly recreational excursions. The couple has bowled in at least one league in each center since coming to Fort Hood in 1995, to include Bowler’s Green and Albee Lanes. Rullie appreciates how bowling has allowed him to travel not only around Texas but the United States and even Germany. Rullie feels his greatest accomplishment is the 2012 Texas USBC Division 2 Doubles Champion with his partner and friend Brice Miller. Annually, he bowls in the the two High-Roller Military Tournaments in Las Vegas, USBC Open Tournaments, Texas Open Tournament, Texas State Senior and Mixed Tournaments and the Greater Killeen Fort Hood USBC local tournaments when they don’t conflict with other tournaments. Rullie’s plan is to continue to enjoy bowling and encouraging others to do the same as long as he can. Bowling his first 800- series is at the top of his bucket list.
